Turkish Airlines has chosen the MiQ business class seat by Rockwell Collins for its new Airbus A321 neo and Boeing B737 Max aircraft.

The seat will be fitted to 92 A321 neos and 77 B737 Max medium-haul, single-aisle aircraft, delivery of which are both now underway.

The MiQ seat features “a comfortable, ergonomic reclining position, including a four-way adjustable headrest and leg rest”, as well as “a large console” for storage.

Aisle seats have an armrest which retracts downwards to allow for extra width, and also to enable passengers to “swing their knees into the aisle so window-seat passengers may move in and out of the row”.

Commenting on the news Ahmet Olmuştur, Turkish Airlines Chief Marketing Officer, said:

“We are very excited to introduce our latest business class seats in our new generation 167 narrow body aircraft.

“As we continue to take firm steps to increase our passengers’ comfort to an even higher level, we now place those state-of-the-art seats, having special features such as seat back inflight entertainment screens, retractable privacy panels, accessible personal stowage and power outlets, in our new medium-haul fleet.

“With keeping a close eye into customer expectations, we will continue to present the highest standards with our cabin and seat designs in the future.”
